Omri Ben Shachar


Omri, the son of the former mayor of Givatayim, Reuven Ben Shahar, fought in the Paratroopers’ Reconnaissance Unit and was killed in a battle in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. At 25 years old, he is survived by his parents and a twin brother.

His partner, Lior, tearfully eulogized him: “We had plans for the future; you said we would get married. My hero, you are the person with the biggest heart I know.”

His father, in pain, said: “On Friday, an emissary of Satan emerged from the bowels of the earth and took you and your friends. Our greatest treasure has been laid to rest.”
